CS 640: Computer Networks
Spring '16: Programming Assignments

[ Home | Schedule | Work | Piazza ]

The course will be quite hands on. We will have 5 programming assignments. In general, the programming assignments are to be done in groups of 2. Each project will be due 2-3 weeks after it is assigned. Prior experience has shown that students who begin projects shortly after they are assigned are more likely to succeed. Projects submitted after the day and time they are due will be penalized 5 points per day, unless you have made prior arrangements with me due to extenuating circumstances.

You should pick your own group members for your projects, but you may use the Piazza site for the course to help find group members. You have the option of switching group members between projects. Completing a project individually requires my prior approval.

All code and results you submit must be the original work of your group. Cheating and plagiarism will not be tolerated and will be dealt with in accordance with University of Wisconsin policies and procedures.
